Traditional Kyo-Yaki (Kyoto Style)

This Yunomi features the quintessential Japanese spring scenery and symbols of the season. SAKURA cherry blossoms are gracefully decorated inside and outside the teacup. The harmony and contrast of natural white clay and the lovely decoration are very unique.

HANA of this name means flowers and BIYORI means perfect day in Japanese. SAKURA cherry blossoms, painted on this teacup, are well-loved flowers, symbolizing springtime in Japan. Considering the price and quality, this Yunomi cup is an outstanding value.

Though the color and brushwork are vivid, the whole atmosphere is amazingly soft and gentle, a beautiful effect characteristic of Mr. Zuikoh's expert artistry. This Yunomi is modestly sized, so that it fits in your palm, and you can feel the soft and calm spring atmosphere in your hand. Although this Yunomi features a lovely spring scene, it is certainly appropriate for use throughout the year, in any season.

Colorful patches of orange are called GOHONDE, a traditional technique that adds warmth to the atmosphere of the work. It is impossible to fully control the contrasting density of GOHONDE, so that GOHONDE is a little different in each work. Linear ridges from the potter's wheel, on the outside of the Yunomi, add a soothing rhythm.

The SAKURA cherry blossoms are in full bloom on this Yunomi, and its gracefulness will enhance the taste of green tea. Would you try this Yunomi which evokes the kind and warm spirit of nature?

Specially packaged in a carton box.
